Overall, amazing ski. Super fun and versatile. The soft flex and rocker make these extremely usable all over the mountain. If you can afford these with a decent set of binders (I suggest something with over a 12 DIN) and you have a space in your quiver, take the chance and make the purchase. I can almost guarantee you won't regret it.
These straight up kill it everywhere.
Pow: Somehow in powder these skis' underfoot expands when it hits powder. The 105mm mid skis more like a 120mm. I have yet to have these in more than 8in. of fresh, but from what I have experienced they work great.
Groomers: This is the only rockered ski that I have been on that can actually hold an edge on the groomed stuff. Even at high speeds I don't get that usual chatter that comes from things with early rise.
Park: Fun park machines. The soft flex makes butters and hand drags fun and honestly a breeze. I've never had an easier time carving off jumps and they are surprisingly smooth in the air for their size. (Probably also due to the fact that mine are almost mounted center.) They're even decent on rails and boxes, besides they're a little heavier than I would choose. Not that that is too avoidable.
I don't mind the graphics, but I'm also not a huge fan. Currently mine are mounted with Marker Jesters. I'm thinking of dying the bindings either neon green or purple, then I think they'll be done. :-)
I bought mine used, three days before me. I got them for $425 shipped with Jesters, so mine were a pretty damn good deal. I think so anyway.
As, most of us know, K2's always seem to run a little long. Same with these, my 179's run closer to a 184 which is really no biggie. I'm 6'1 170 lbs. and for what I use these for. (They basically fill the spot between my park skis and true pow skis.)
Like I've said before, I love soft skis. The Seth's are no different. Definitely soft, but no where near the Hellbent. The 10/20 rocker design in both the tip and tail also adds and ton to the flex and overall fun of this ski.
Not only are K2's known for long measurements, but also topsheet chipping and slicing. These are the same case, but it's really no biggie. Nothing a little Gorilla Glue doesn't fix, and it's not as severe as my Anthems. The bases are also doing well, one scratch but it's nowhere near the core.
